Designed on the basic hypothesis that an individual’s thought process strongly influences his or her behavior, the FAVT measures different types of thoughts that have been found to predispose an individual to violent behavior.

Determine if violent individuals need to be separated from prospective targets

  • Derived directly from clinical material gathered from violent individuals, FAVT items represent thoughts experienced prior to committing violent acts.
  • FAVT items are organized into five levels (i.e., Paranoid/Suspicious, Persecuted Misfit, Self-Depreciating/Pseudo-Independent, Overtly Aggressive, Self-Aggrandizing) and two theoretical subscales (i.e., Instrumental/Proactive Violence, Hostile/Reactive Violence), allowing you to better understand the client and thus offer more targeted treatment.
  • Data on two reference groups (i.e., Incarcerated, Anger Management) provide you with valuable information for making level-of-care/restriction decisions and for identifying the appropriate intervention intensity.
  • Change score tables are provided across four different levels of significance for four normative groups and two reference groups so that you can judge the significance of a change over two administrations.
  • The FAVT is ideal for use (a) as a screening device of violence potential within normal, clinical, and forensic settings; (b) as a threat assessment measure; (c) in the identification of violent thoughts and subsequent clinical intervention; and (d) for monitoring an individual’s level of change or progress at regular intervals or at key points in the treatment process.

Adolescent version also available

Derived directly from clinical material gathered from violent individuals, FAVT-A items represent thoughts experienced prior to committing violent acts.

  • Items are organized into four levels (i.e., Paranoid/Suspicious, Persecuted Misfit, Self-Depreciating/Pseudo-Independent, Overtly Aggressive) and two theoretical subscales (i.e., Instrumental/Proactive Violence, Hostile/Reactive Violence).
  • Data on two reference groups (i.e., Incarcerated, Probation) are included.
  • Change score tables are provided across four different levels of significance for the four normative groups and for the two reference groups so that you can easily find out if a significant change has occurred over two administrations.
